Jim Miotke Student 11/9/2001 4:32:50 PM

So... what do you think? Where is this place? #1657

Heather Neumark 11/9/2001 9:16:42 PM

I have a feeling it is somewhere in Italy. I am not sure - that or either somewhere in Europe. It is a great pic.

This past summer my granddaughter went to spain. She brought back a picture that looks a lot like this one. I think it is in Spain. #2537

john s 11/10/2001 6:59:14 PM

It looks like a Swiss town. #2543

Donna R. Moratelli 11/10/2001 7:40:54 PM

could it be Place Celestines? Looks like the same style architecture. Otherwise,somewhere in France.Donnarae #2545

Charlie F. Kohn 11/11/2001 10:27:03 AM

Bob Wilken 11/12/2001 12:47:00 AM

I have responed and you keep sending it back again.I am Bob W and I gave my answer on 11 9 01 quite sending this back.were is it taken? Or Don't you know? #2577

Jim Miotke 11/12/2001 1:24:57 AM

Hi Bob (and everybody) -

When you answer the question, there is a checkbox that says "If you would like to be notified when someone responds to this thread, check this box." Since you left that checked, you are getting notified when others try to answer. I have changed your notification status, Bob, so this won't happen again.

By the way, 1 and 1/3 of the above answers are getting very warm but I am hoping for a more specific answer. The correct answer will be posted in the next PhotoFlash.

May the best travel photographer win ;^)

Bob Wilken 11/12/2001 1:49:33 AM

Thanks for telling me about the check mark.I didn't do it this time. My second guess is Geneva, Switzerland #2579

Charlie F. Kohn 11/12/2001 3:32:51 AM

my last guess is stein am rhein/switzerland.

charlie f.kohn at sixpence-pictures.com #2581

Charlie F. Kohn 11/12/2001 2:19:45 PM

I believe this photo was taken in Rome, veniece or italy #2598

Charlie F. Kohn 11/13/2001 6:31:25 AM

A guess that it is in Venice #2628

Jim Dunst 11/14/2001 11:47:08 AM

I believe this is Switzerland, perhaps Berne #2662

Amy Wadley 11/20/2001 12:37:15 PM

I have a feeling it is somewhere in the French Countryside. Not sure exactly what town though. #2869

Michael S. McCook 11/20/2001 1:25:29 PM

I believe it is Berne, Switzerland too. Looks to be 3:00 on a Sunday afternoon. #2872

Jim Miotke 11/20/2001 1:31:53 PM

That's very cute. I know I'm being a slave driver. And you are very close, by the way. #2873

Charlie F. Kohn 11/20/2001 8:31:31 PM

i thought again and find myself at home in st. gallen then. that might be it with the bicoloured roof of the clocktower.

charlie f. kohn #2883

Celia 11/21/2001 9:29:22 PM

I think Snappy is in Switzerland and the town could be "Murten"(Morat in French)in the canton of Fribourg. If it is not then Murten is a nice little place to vistit anyhow. #2927

Celia 11/21/2001 10:52:37 PM

Well, on the other hand, if Michael M. is close and it is in or near Berne, could Snappy" be in the township of "Burgdorf"? #2934

Jim Miotke 12/7/2001 9:48:26 PM

Wow - many of you were getting very warm this time. I know it was an especially hard one.

The correct country was Switzerland. That brought many of you into the running. Namely, John S. was first to guess a "Swiss village." Then Bob W., Charlie F. Kohn, Jim D., Michael M., and Celia gave even more specific answers.

The correct village, however, was Zug, a small town between Zurich and Luzern. No one got that right but I'd say that Celia and Charlie came in with a close tie. Zug is right in between Celia's last answer of Burgdorf and Charlie's last answer of St. Gallen (and Stein am Rhein for that matter). Good job, guys.

Thanks for all your great answers! The model, by the way, is Dudo Erny - one of BetterPhoto's supporting advertisers. His site - BigFoto.com - is well worth a visit.

I promise the next one won't be so hard :) #3604
